Hello everyone, I've just stumbled upon these two words, widely known in Modern High German but with their meanings swapped. Today, Gebein means bones and Bein means leg. Does anybody know how it came to this? My sources for the words' meanings are the following: Bein (Merseburger Zaubersprüche) sose benrenki, sose bluotrenki, sose lidirenki: ben zi bena, bluot si bluoda, lid zi geliden, sose gelimida sin!
